The disciples came to Jesus at this time and said, Tell us, who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Whereupon Jesus called to his side a little child, to whom he gave a place in the midst of them, and said, Believe me, unless you become like little children again, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. He is greatest in the kingdom of heaven who will abase himself like this little child. He who gives welcome to such a child as this in my name, gives welcome to me. (Matthew 18:1-5, R. Knox version)
Be like little children. Trust, hope, and have faith in God, His Church, His Saints, and His Lovely Sacraments. He loves us more than we know - indeed, as a father loves His children. He kisses each and every one of us on the forehead daily with Love and Compassion. He wants us to be with Him, and He eagerly waits each day for our yes to Him. He does not need it, but wants it nonetheless because He loves us just for the sake of Loving us.
A child loves her parents because they are her parents. So it is to be in our relationship with God and All That He Is. He is Our Father and wants nothing nothing else but to be Our Father.
Let us welcome such children by first welcoming ourselves as such children. It is not an easy thing to do. But it is so worth it.
God love you all.
